I'm surprised to see 4/14, 4/15 on your list. I don't consider those to be particularly strong performances, and certainly not among the better shows of 1971. Personally, I think 4/12 is a much better performance, in spite of the cuts.

I'd certainly add 7/2 and 11/7, two of the very best from 1971. The list would still not be comprehensive...

4/12 is also a great show. I've never been a big fan of 7/2, the Fillmore West closing show, but perhaps I should give it another listen.

You're definitely not the only one who's less impressed with 7/2/71, but I consider it to be a monumental performance and some others agree (including William Tell). Several dynamite renditions, in my opinion, and one of the best performances of Cryptical> Other One of 1971.

Definitely agree about this show, esp. the Other One - what a monster!
